wonderful team. Dr. Poo is a fantastic person to see if you hurt. He is caring, listens to you and treats you like you are the only patient he has. I just wish he was closer

I hadded a visit with another doctor here and she prescribed me some medication that ended up making me very sick. I called in and let them know. They want me to stop in and I saw Poovendran. He first started telling me how every typical white man in America is on heroine and I needed to not be like them. I have never taken a drug in my life. I had knee surgery two years ago and I was in severe pain. I ended the visit and walked out. I have never met a doctor that was so racist in my life

Dr. Poovendran takes time with his patients. Although I am not a patient of his, my 81 year old mother is. Dr. Poovendran always explains things to her and answers her questions. He is a wonderful doctor!
